Deutsche Post DHL Group has announced that by 2021 it will add 3,000 DHL Packstations to its existing network of 4,000 automated parcel delivery and collection points. This will bring the total number of Packstations in Germany to 7,000.
“For many of our more than 12 million registered customers, DHL Packstations are an integral part of their online shopping experience and an indispensable part of their everyday lives. That’s why we’re investing large sums to further expand our Packstation network across Germany – in rural areas and in cities. We’re not only responding to the sustained strong growth seen in parcel volumes, but we are also giving customers even greater access to our parcel service network,” said Tobias Meyer, board member for post and parcel at Deutsche Post DHL Group.
Deutsche Post DHL currently has a network of 28,000 parcel collection points, consisting of 4,000 Packstations and 24,000 postal outlets or DHL parcel shops. The company plans to continue expanding its Packstation network beyond 2021. The network will thus play a key role in providing services to customers throughout Germany in the future.
